Painting Landscapes

I recently started to paint landscapes again, and holy cow, the results have been great. Ever since I began to take classes with Lorin Willey, my painting has improved dramatically.

The Martini Girls are scheduled to have an exhibition at the Art Bar this year in August. We’ve named the show “Itty Bitty Ditty Bites” and we’re using songs for inspiration for the paintings. Below each painting or on the painting itself we will be attaching a printed phrase from the song we used for inspiration for that particular piece.

I can't tell if it's the cold, still snowy weather, the crap that the new governor is getting away with in Madison, or just the fact that I've been really busy, working the regular 8:00 to 4:45 day job AND planning, hanging and participating in 4 Spring art shows that has me feeling so drained.  Today I want to just close my eyes, and magically transport myself to somewhere else--a beach maybe.  Somewhere warm, breezy and sunny.  I want to have my easel set up and a drink with a little umbrella in my hand.

When my husband called earlier, I was glad to hear his voice....until he started lecturing to me about travelling.  I had to hang up.
